1859 Indian Cent Pattern, MS65+
1859 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-227, Pollock-271, Snow-PT3, Low R.6,
MS65+ NGC. CAC.
Judd-227, Ornamental Shield Reverse
Design. The obverse is the normal design for the first-year Indian cent, mated with a reverse displaying an ornamental shield at the top of an oak wreath. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.
Commentary. The reverse is similar to the regular issue design adopted in 1860, although the shield on the regular issue cent was plain in comparison. This is one of only a few pattern issues that were minted in a non-proof format. The terms "business strike" and "circulation strike" do not apply since there was no intent to use these pieces in commerce.
Physical Description. The feather tips are a bit blunt, although all other details are sharp. The golden-tan surfaces are fully lustrous with brilliant mint frost. Minor carbon flecks are evident on each side.

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
